A post from Abby…

A friend of mine just forwarded me this article about the site Read at Work, which is an incentive sponsored by the New Zealand Book Council that is designed to encourage people to read…on company time!

The interface is designed to look exactly like Windows, and the short stories, poems, etc are made to look like businessy powerpoint presentations, so you can look busy while reading New Zealand’s literary works and classic novels.

I think this project is entirely in keeping with the mood of NTTL — glad to know there are more of us out there. Perhaps we should take the show to New Zealand next!

Thanks for posting this, Abby! This is way cool!
Ahh… reading for pleasure if one of the many things I know I sacrifice as a result of working too much. I hope this helps people get the right sides of their brain bubbling again =-)
